Richard Upton

Richard, Production Lead for RainMaker Signs, has been working in the sign and vehicle wraps industry for over 17 years.  Richard handles vinyl like a master and his vinyl printing, laminating, cutting and installation skills are second to none.  Richard has wrapped everything from your basic car, truck and van, to boats, buildings, trains, even the Seattle Monorail and he's a stickler for details.  Transformations often happen over night when Richard heads out to a variety of destinations to put up large format graphics or wrap unusual objects to be discovered by shoppers/passengers/commuters the next day.  

When Richard is away from work, he enjoys discovering the wonders of the greater Seattle area with his young son.
